BB Dakota Fashion-forward apparel for the city gal

by Karmaloop Rep Code

clothingBB Dakota is the fashion label of Canadian designer Gloria Brandes. Born in Montreal and raised in Quebec, she brought her unique French sensibility to the clothes that she designed for her Orange County audience.

Although Brandes has been making stylish dresses, skirts and tops for young women since 1986, her creations only entered the mainstream market around six years ago when fashion editors began to feature BB Dakota in national magazines.

Back in the 90s, Gloria Brandes was an insider’s secret. Devoted fans used to line outside her small Laguna Beach boutique for a chance to purchase citified prep pieces that were Americana influenced but had a quirky, feminine twist.

In 2005, Brandes founded BB Dakota to fill the void for highly-covetable, trend-driven apparel with quality construction in the contemporary market. Two years later, Jack by BB Dakota was launched to appeal to a slightly younger, edgier customer.

Both BB Dakota and Jack offer fashion-forward, affordable designs for the modern woman. The cuts are defined by lady-like details and accents in a comfortable fit.

Today, BB Dakota and Jack are run by the mother-daughter tandem of Gloria and Katharine Brandes. Each of the women brings their distinct viewpoint to the design process, which is what gives the BB Dakota look its compelling duality.

Gloria and Katharine are united in the goal of bringing good, smart design to strong women and to create clothing whose sexiness emanates from its subtlety and sense of humor.
